Configure SAML SSO in your Identity Provider

These instructions are generic; please refer to your Identity Provider's documentation for how to accomplish these steps, or reach out to Coda for assistance.

  1. Create a new application in your Identity Provider administration console and enable SAML SSO.
  2. Copy the SAML Response URL from Coda into the appropriate location in your Identity Provider setup.
  3. If the Audience Restriction field is available in your application, copy the Entity ID from Coda into that field.
  4. Ensure your application passes user identity to Coda in "email" format; that is, your Identity Provider is sending email-address like user identities to Coda.
  5. Update your application to pass each user's first name and last name into Coda using parameters named "FirstName" and "LastName".
  6. Save your application and note the resulting Identity Provider Single Sign on URL, Identity Provider Issuer, and X.509 Signing Certificate.
  7. Depending on your Identity Provider, you may need to assign users or groups to this new application.
